Past-Boss is the fourth stage in Nemesis 3.


This is a boss rush stage where the player must fight every boss before advancing to the next level. After the initial Zub Rush the player faces off against a version of Tetran unique to this game; once defeated the player can enter its frontal opening to collect a secret weapon. It is then followed by Abaddon, Misfit and the Big Core.
